"Feed for More Than Maintenance"
January 2020 calf mgt newsletter

The primary points in this newsletter:
  • ·         Maintenance = keep core body temperature at 101°F, replace cells, eat and breathe.
  • ·         Growth = make new cells to support immunity and get bigger.
  • ·        For our youngest calves, as environmental temperatures fall below 60°F they burn energy to maintain core body temperature – see bar chart on page one.
  • ·          In order to improve immunity to replace protection from colostrum, our youngest calves need lots of energy beyond maintenance.
